Automated external email forwarding is a tactic attackers use to exfiltrate data out of an organization. To counter that, we are updating our anti-spam policies. First, we are providing a control to easily enable automatic external forwarding for select people in your organization. Second, we will change the ?Automatic? setting to block automatic external forwarding. Internal automatic forwarding of messages will not be impacted by this change.
